Paint All the Nails Presents: Watercolor

Provided for Review
Hi everyone! I have some nail art today with this month's Paint All the Nails link up. For this month the theme was Watercolor.

Doing watercolor nails is something that allows for a lot of creative freedom and one of my favorite nail art techniques. I like how you can create something abstract or something more complex, depending on the colors or method you use. 

I decided to do a floral watercolor look, done freehand with a brush. The colors I chose are part of the upcoming Polish My Life Thank You for Being a Friend Collection, a four piece set. My review is forthcoming so once I have that published later, I will link it here. 

Using a little palette, I put a few droplets of the red and pink polishes and diluted them with pure acetone. Then using a brush, I painted on the flowers. I added some green and black to accent and then just dabbed on, just slightly, a little more acetone, to give it a more "watercolor" look. 

Some added matte topcoat, because that's yes, please, always to matte. I love how soft and oh so girly this looks. What do you think?

I hope you like the look I came up with and make sure to click on the links below to see what my fellow bloggers have created!


  1. I love how you interpret the prompt, you don't use watercolor to create a textured background but, like it is use in real art, as a way to create soft paintings. Your floral is beautiful, I have a preference for the matte version which reinforce the sweet side of this nailart :)

  2. Yes yes always yes to matte! This nail art is so sweet it's giving me a toothache!
